    Slick... No mint green needed on that lol. It looks like it will be chimey piano like. Fingerstyle. Just the vibe I get from it. But still a squacker no doubt. Any sound clips?

    All I have been told the neck is made of walnut also but I hit up Ron and he lost the records on this baby due to a computer glitch back in the day but he remembers the neck being rosewood. Was he talking about the fretboard or the whole neck? Do they make necks out of Walnut and Rosewood?

    Looks stunning.
    I really like the detailed touches, like the counter sunk back plates, the beveled edges on the top, and the neck joint.

    Walnut is a nice sounding wood.
    I have a walnut guitar and it is very unique sounding.
    Congrats on a fine instrument.
